friends and meatballs

2015-04-18 007At least once a year we host a dinner for three other couples.  The eight of us take turns, so we’re guaranteed to get together four times a year.  It started after the Scotch Tasting Dinner https://isthereanymorepie.wordpress.com/2012/01/30/the-tasting-dinner-menu/and progressed to other scotch-tasting meals, game nights, pool and just plain good times with wine and conversation and lots of laughs.

Last Saturday night it was our turn.  Banjo Man learned how to make meatballs and we kept it simple, with a huge antipasto and spaghetti and meatballs, with chocolate truffles for dessert.

    That’s a lovely table setting. But then, I love all your table settings!
    It’s wonderful that you make a habit of seeing the other three couples at least four times a year for an enjoyable dinner. Bravo!
